Course code: SIOUX-1
Years with company:
Primary programming language:
Other programming languages:
Unit test harnesses:
nunit, cppunit, boost.test
I am a happy and experienced software tester, focusing on test automation. Propagating TDD a lot, but as a tester, not really able to follow it exactly.
For complete overview:
Test practice now:
Our devs use unit tests, I do additional integration and end to end testing (automated as much as possible).
Currently web services, but wanting to go back into (embedded) software testing
Visual Studio, Resharper
We follow the CleanCode guidelines as advocated by Robert C. Martin as much as possible.
Function too long:
If I loose the overview of the function, or if it does more than 1 thing
Varying quality... Depending totally on the person
Favorite thing about dev:
Making a whole system move through its paces and actually check what it does (from a testing point of view)
Least favorite thing about dev:
When non reproducible problems occur, which cause much troubleshooting or debugging...
Quite a lot already, in C#/.NET context that is. In a SOA environment. Have been reading a lot on it, and watched up to episode 26 of the CleanCode series (some episodes more than once).
Why are you attending:
As tester I can’t do pure TDD (test the test discussion). I do try to work with devs as early as possible, reviewing unit tests. I want to feel TDD, to be able to better work with devs. This will also be a refresher for me on C/C++ (going back to it)
